Former ISE Agent Opens New Dynasty Sports Group; Fegan Denies Role With Agency

Aylton Tesch, one of two NBA agents who left ISE after the agency fired Dan Fegan, has set up a new agency called Dynasty Sports Group. Tesch, who resigned from ISE on March 13, filed the paperwork to register Dynasty Sports Group as an LLC with the California Secretary of State's office on March 24. At the time the company was formed, Fegan was under a temporary restraining order issued by California Superior Court which restricted him from competing with ISE, including launching or joining another company. The TRO started on March 17 and ended on April 7. A Fegan spokesperson said that the agent "had no formal role with Dynasty Sports during the period the state court TRO was in effect.” The spokesperson: "As of today, Dan is still not working with Dynasty." Tesch declined comment on the situation. Fegan is no longer under any type of order not to compete with ISE after an arbitrator last week ruled against ISE's request to prevent the agent from competing with it. The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported that news, as well as the existence of Dynasty Sports. The moniker Dynasty Sports is not new to Fegan -- in '08, he sold his business, which carried the name Dynasty Sports Group, to the former Blue Equity Sports Television. BEST was later sold to Lagardère Sports in '10. The names Arnaud Lagardère, the French billionaire who is General and Managing Partner that agency's parent company, Lagardère SCA; and Andy Pierce, Lagardère Sports President & CEO for the Americas, both appear on documents regarding the former Dynasty Sports Group, which was dissolved in '15, according to documents filed with the California Secretary of State. ISE as part of its legal battle against Fegan has alleged the agent ran a side business to compete against it while he was under contract to ISE. That side business is named Fegan Sports, LLC, and it has the same address as the new Dynasty Sports Group.
